Jimmy Porter, frustrated and bitter in his drab flat, lives with his middle-class wife, Alison. Also sharing the flat is Cliff who keeps things tenuously together. Alison's friend Helen arrives and persuades her to leave Jimmy only to fall for him herself. When Alison becomes pregnant, Helen leaves the couple. This play originally opened at the Royal Court Theatre in 1956 and has since proved to be a milestone in the history of theater.

display_description Jimmy Porter barely ekes out a living running a candy stall by day and playing jazz trumpet by night. Although he usually takes his frustrations out on his emotionless wife, Jimmy's scathing tongue and self-loathing seems destined to destroy everything. Set in the UK at the dawn of the 60's social unrest, this savage morality tale spawned the phrase "angry young man." This recording also includes an interview with Dan Rebellato, author of "1956 and All That: The Making of Modern British Drama". An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Steven Brand as Cliff; Moira Quirk as Alison; Simon Templeman as Jimmy; James Warwick as Colonel Redhorn; Joanne Whalley as Helena.
